In short: More toilets PLEASE!!!!!!! In full: I have a couple of 'gripes' one is people who clearly should not be in a wave e.g. orange slowest speed was 1hr 20 yet some people were slower than this as were some people a lot quicker in the other waves causing bumping and barging! I felt soooo sorry for the white and green waves (i was in orange and yes i was inside 1:20) when 2 miles into the race the heavens opened and the white wave at this point hadnt even started what on earth must the green wave have been like?
Anyway i digress! My main 'moan' is at the orange wave WHY ARE THERE NO LOOS NEAR THE ORANGE START??? this cuses inconvienience (pardon pun) to all as the orange wave have to 'muscle' in with white and green wave to use loos causing more tailbacks whilst waiting for them not to mention the hassle of getting back to the first wave! Please someone out there get this problem sorted!!
It has been said before but i echo comments when i say the race is getting bigger than the organisers are catering for! with a bit more consideration and planning this race could go back to what it used to be like! P.S. goody bag rather disappointing this year! Date of review: November 4, 2006
In short: Fanastic race for the minimal entry fee!! In full: First time i have enetered anything after a 13 month lay off due to injury and only 2 and a half months preparation. Cant fault it for the price you pay. Marshalls very friendly good support and this was a fantastic way to welcome me back to running. Date of review: August 21, 2006
In short: With a bit more organisation it has the potential to be a meet In full: The race on the whole was a good one just one fault = the marshalls or lack of them and when you did see one they looked like they had had one too many the night before! Nearly got squashed going over one roundabout and it felt a bit intimidating going down towards the square second time around as i was well aware of impatient drivers behind me revving their engines.Just before the end a marshall told me to go one way before saying sorry its that way and to top it off i was hoping to 'kick' the last part home only to find the finish closer than what i had been told! And as for fighting over the t-shirts at the end??? ijust feel that with a bit more thought this has the potential to be a good fast enjoyable run. Date of review: February 16, 2005
